Beginning this Sunday June 26, Metro is making several changes to improve the efficiency of your bus service. For complete details, look for revised timetables on metro.net or on buses during June.
Line 220 has been combined with Line 16 to create new Line 17. Service starts in Downtown LA following the routes of Line 16 and old Line 220, terminating at the Culver City Expo Station.
New Line 17 replaces Line 220 on Robertson Bl and continues on 3rd St to Downtown LA. Line 17 will operate as a branch of Line 16. Patrons along 3rd St may board either Lines 16 or 17.
Discontinue Limited Stop Line 352 and replace with new Limited Stop Line 351. All existing limited stops on Line 352 will be served by the new Line 351. Line 51 operates more frequently than Line 52; therefore, a new Line 351 will benefit more riders with a faster service.
